Doughnut Muffins

'Mmmmmmm' Miss 8 breathed as I pulled these muffins out of the oven, 'Mum, they smell just like doughnuts!' and then a few minutes later......'Ohhhh Yum! They taste like doughnuts too!'

As you can tell Doughnut Muffins are a huge hit with my children. They are easy to make and taste fabulous. You should end up with a light, fluffy, fragrant long as you follow the golden rule of over mixing!

Doughnut Muffins

175 grams of butter
200 grams caster sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups of plain flour
3/4 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarb soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
250 mls milk


100 grams caster sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsps butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 180C
Line a 12 cup muffin pan with patty cases.

In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat well between each addition. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarb and cinnamon into a separate bowl. Add half to the creamed mixture with half the milk. Gently fold together before adding the rest of the flour mix and milk. Mix very gently until just incorporated.
Spoon into the prepared muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden.

For the topping, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. While the muffins are still warm, brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon & sugar.....Delicious!


  1. When donuts and muffins come together, I am so there. x

  2. Oh yum, you may have just ensured my childrens everlasting love!

    One question though. Roughly how many grams is a cup? This always gets me as we don't use that measurement in the UK and when I look it up the conversion tables are all different. x

  3. It's around 115 grams Sarah. I hope your children love them!

  4. Thanks Lene, I'm sure they will :)
